So why not their politics? A recently published study in the Journal of Public Economics concludes that the attractiveness of a candidate does correlate with their politics. They find that politicians on the right are more good looking in Europe, the United States and Australia. The study shows correlation, not causation, but the researchers float a simple economic explanation for why this might happen.

The rise of television led to the election of more photogenic Presidents and other influential politicians. Sure, occasionally we get a homely dude in there, but for the most part, our POTUS must be above average in the looks department and have nice hair.
People are shallow! What can we say?
I realized this truth in high school and called Bill Clinton's election to the office of the President from the primary line-up. He was the best looking guy with the best record and was toeing the centrist line. A year and a half later I was proven right.
